With the many service accounts that modern life requires you to have, it's easy enough sometimes to lose access to the email address you use for an important account like LinkedIn. Just dropping or losing your phone could get you locked out of your account if the phone was the only place you accessed the account email. Losing your job can get you locked out too, if you were using your work email for your LinkedIn profile. If you have lost access to your LinkedIn account and you no longer have access to the email that you linked to the account, just follow these instructions.
If these instructions are not enough to resolve the problem, then you will need to call LinkedIn's customer service number. You can find it here. The customer service lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
After thousands of LinkedIn customers came to GetHuman in search of an answer to this problem (and many others), we decided it was time to publish instructions. So we put together How Do I Recover My Linkedin Account If I No Longer Have Access to the Email on the Account? to try to help. It takes time to get through these steps according to other users, including time spent working through each step and contacting LinkedIn if necessary. Best of luck and please let us know if you successfully resolve your issue with guidance from this page.
GetHuman has been working for over 10 years on sourcing information about big organizations like LinkedIn in order to help customers resolve customer service issues faster. We started with contact information and fastest ways to reach a human at big companies. Particularly ones with slow or complicated IVR or phone menu systems. Or companies that have self-serve help forums instead of a customer service department. From there, we realized that consumers still needed more detailed help solving the most common problems, so we expanded to this set of guides, which grows every day. And if you spot any issues with our How Do I Recover My Linkedin Account If I No Longer Have Access to the Email on the Account? guide, please let us know by sending us feedback. We want to be as helpful as possible. If you appreciated this guide, please share it with your favorite people. Our free information and tools is powered by you, the customer. The more people that use it, the better it gets.
